BEETHOVEN: PIANO TRIOS
Magnificent performances of these masterpieces of chamber repertoire by an ensemble almost forgotten but highly regarded in their time. Trio no. 3 was recorded in wartime Berlin (1942) and is transcribed from original 78rpm discs.The other pieces date from ten years later and are taken from a very early vinyl LP.

|“The recording of the C minor trio, new to me, is delectable…. The recording is also superb for 1942. The pianist is a classicist to her fingertips, throwing off pearl-like runs of notes with a consistently lovely tone, and her artistry is fully matched by her colleagues. The “Ghost” …is as splendid as I remember it, with a heartfelt slow movement. This lovely disc carries an unequivocal recommendation.” – Tully Potter (Classic Record Collector)|
